Bus Service between Oakham and Stamford

Posted: Mon, 05 Nov 2018 11:28 by Rowan Scholtz

As you may be aware there have been several changes recently to the local bus services due to Centrebus withdrawing some of its journeys. RCC have been working to try and find ways of filling the gaps that have been left and have now secured some additional journeys on Saturdays which will come into effect from next week. More »

RCC now have several operators and route numbers providing services between Oakham and Stamford with stops in Whitwell, Empingham, Tickencote and Great Casterton, and have put together a composite timetable which they hope will prove easier for passengers to refer to as opposed to all the individual information.

These timetables will be put out at the beginning of next week and RCC will be conducting a leaflet drop to all residences in the villages to advise them of the bus services available, and CallConnect which also offers bookable journeys.

I have attached a copy of the information that will be distributed.
